foo_playlist_revive makes the dead items in the playlist alive again by replacing them with the matching ones in media library.
A handy util for those who often move or rename their media files/folders.

For foobar2000 v0.9.5.2 and upper.

Use main menu -> Edit -> Revive Dead Items to do the job.

Make sure the newly moved tracks have already been scanned into the media library or reviving will fail.

If the playlist is too long or the media library is too large, foobar2k may be unresponsive for several minute since this plug-in runs in the fb2k main thread.

v0.2: http://159.226.40.194/~Gu/fb/foo_playlist_revive_v0.2.rar

Changelog:
* Add progress bar.
* Fix crash caused by illegal file path.

hakase,

your plugin is very helpfully for me, thank you again for it.

One thing I am missing is the listing of revived items in foobar's console.

What do you think about this proposal?

I am not sure whether that info is helpful to user. I'll consider it.

I'm rather sure it is. I was about to download your plugin just because I've needed it a few times, and will be needing it again and again... but I didn't download. Because I will wait until I need it, sincerely hoping this feature will be there. But just highlighting them seems to me like a rather unpleasant status report...

The more control the better. A report when done, that seems obvious to me. I think it should state which items worked and weren't touched, which items were changed, last but not least any items that were broken but couldn't be found. If it could also show all new filepaths, that would be great. That way I could check that there hasn't been any mixing up of similar songs.

I second this. Moreover, I see cases where the plugin fails to find an alternative (same artist, same title, but different codec).

Anyway, hakase seems to have dropped any development ont theis pretty plugin... Would anyone suggest an alternative ?

I have looked but never found any better playlist fixers other then Hakase's plugin. Perhaps it could be open-sourced?

A change I would like to add would be for it to uniquely id the files based on the audio content portion of the file only. This would make it resistant against ID3 header, filename changes and the like.

You might want to look ats M3U Reviver a standalone by Werner Staudacher but I found it quite a fiddle to use.

Another trick I tried was to use an in-built playlist repair facility of WinAmp but looking at my current version that option seems to be absent?

Perhaps there are other apps, I would be intrigued to know.
